PANAMA CITY, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Panama's consumer prices dropped 0.4 percent in August compared to July, the country's statistics office said on Friday.

The fall was mostly due to a decrease in the cost of gasoline and tourism packages, the office said.

Annual inflation for the month rose 0.4 percent, the office said.
